"GetRight: Internet Download Manager"

Overview

How many times an important download simply hangs and you had to start downloading from scratch again? GetRight is the tool that promises to fix this. Its features include the possibility to resume broken downloads from where you have left off as well as deal with error recovery and more. The speed and flexibility of your download are also increased. Is it really different from other download managers out there? Let’s find out in this review.

Installation

GetRight is a small and compact download manager and with a setup kit of just 4MB, the installation is certainly a breeze. You should install this tool in no time. It supports all the versions of the Windows operating system and it doesn’t come bundled with other pieces of software.

Interface

The interface of GetRight is organized, neat and easy to use. Unfortunately, messages that ask you to buy the software are cluttering it a little. The interface looks very good and it has a nice colorful aesthetic to it. It is designed for beginners and anyone who knows how to use a mouse and a keyboard will surely feel happy using it – it’s simplicity at its best!

Pros

Your file downloading power is extended by GetRight through its ability of resuming broken downloads and accelerating them to make them faster and more flexible. All of your downloads are easily managed and when they have finished, a convenient pop-up message appears to alert you. Another feature of GetRight is the fact that BitTorrent downloads are supported too. Downloads can be scheduled for later and you can also use GetRight to dial your modem too. If you encounter any problems such as a Windows crash or lost connection to the download server, GetRight will easily recover the desired files. By using GetRight, the speed of your download is increased as it separates the file into smaller chunks. This process ensures that your bandwidth is utilized 100%.

Cons

For all the things it gets right, this download manager also has a few shortcomings that prevent it to be truly outstanding. Firstly, the switching between modes is annoying and doesn’t work as it should. At first glance, GetRight appears as a simple tool but then when you try and change modes, it becomes confusing. Secondly, there were times when the download resume didn’t work properly and the download is seen starting from the beginning again.

Alternatives

There are a lot of download managers out there and the most popular alternatives to GetRight are Internet Download ManagerDownThemAll, Orbit Downloader, Free Download Manager and many more. These tools have more or less the same functions as GetRight with additional features such as downloading content from a social media website. It depends on what you are looking for. GetRight has a lot of features that need some proper time in order for its users to fully master them.

Conclusion

GetRight does a lot of good things but it is also a flawed tool. In the majority of cases, it works great and downloads are processed and resumed fast. However, in other cases, it falls short. Nevertheless, it represents a good solution for those beginners and intermediate users who don’t want to mess around in a thousand options and settings since the “simple” mode will suffice.
